Interested in Auditioning?
We’re looking forward to learning more about you.
Thank you for your interest in singing with the La Crosse Chamber Chorale! The Chamber Chorale is made up of 34-40 singers of varying ages, who are devoted to providing professional quality choral music. It is a musical melting pot — a group in which college students sing beside retirees, in which people shed labels like farmer, teacher, bank teller and nurse, leaving only their voices. Over the years, the choir has performed everything from classical to contemporary, from sacred hymns to primitive chants, from Bach, Brahms, and Mendelssohn to more contemporary composers such as Eric Whitacre, Jake Runestad, and Ola Gjeilo.
The Chorale holds annual auditions each May after our final May Feaste performance for the following season. If you are interested in being a part of this ensemble, we would love to hear from you! Please leave us with your name, voice part, email address, phone number, and a brief outline of your choral experience and we will contact you in May to set up your audition. We try to keep the auditions as informal as possible, as we know how stressful the audition process can be. When contacted, you will be asked to prepare a simple, melodic piece we will provide in advance, and there will also be a short sight-reading component. The entire audition start to finish won’t take more than 5-10 minutes.
Although it is rare, there are times we are looking to add a singer mid-season. We would encourage you to provide us with this information as soon as possible, as when these instances occur, we go directly to the list of those who have expressed their interest through our website.
The Chamber Chorale prides itself in being a welcoming place for all who love choral music, while also upholding a very high performance standard. If this sounds like something for you, we’d love to hear from you and have you as a part of this special group within La Crosse community.
